Post-It Art

for a period of three months, I began a daily creative exercise whereby I generated as many random images as possible in a 20-minute time period using standard yellow post-it® notes, markers and colored pencils.
The finished post-it notes are displayed in my gallery show, Life After Lovely, in Johnstown, PA throughout the month of April 2011.

to check out more of my post-it notes, see my behance project page.

Life After Lovely Opening

The Life After Lovely art opening was a success! Good turnout, tasty food, great music, happy vibes. Thanks to all who attended.
